Believe will finance, produce and distribute Forever Family, with its partners Dan Goodman, William H. Masterson III and Danny Fishman executive producing alongside Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’s Conrad Ricketts and reality producer Peter T. Cohen.
This comes after ITV bought an unspecified stake in New York-based Believe in September last year.
Forever Family will debut on Meredith-owned Parents.com, and will also run on other Meredith platforms and via syndication partners.
Des Moines-based Meredith is yet another media group pushing into original series. Forever Family, which is part of an initiative titled Meredith Originals, has been described as a “tentpole” of the strategy.
Tia Mowry will host Forever Family, which will tell “inspirational and heartwarming stories of everyday people and their extraordinary experiences trying to overcome fertility challenges”.
